An Evening With Melissa Etheridge
May 22 , 2017 Doors: 7:30pm Show: 8:00PM
Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the GRAMMY Awards telecast in 1989. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy," for which she won a GRAMMY in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993). The collection featured the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second GRAMMY Award for Best Female Rock Performance. Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America's favorite female singer/songwriters for more than two decades. In October 2016, Etheridge released Memphis Rock & Soul, her first album since 2014's critically lauded This Is M.E. The 12-track album features original material as well as interpretations of classic songs from the legendary Stax catalog, celebrating its artists and legacy and spotlighting the vital role Stax Records played in the Civil Rights Movement. The GRAMMY Museum welcomes Melissa Etheridge for a discussion on her latest album followed by an intimate performance. The evening will be hosted by Scott Goldman, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum.
There is a 2 ticket limit per household/membership for this event.
